It isn’t a question- why the absence of someone that made you happy should be painful. We become accustom to the time we spend with that person and the joy it brings to our lives. We wake up hopeful, thinking: I can make this work. We can get through this together. But sometimes, the closer we get, the more toxic people become for us.
but people are weak, and anchors sink
I cannot save you from yourself
you have to let God save you
but you are godless, your hope is scorched
so you twist me around and push me away
because it’s what you know
because it’s been rehearsed
so I’ll be here praying that God holds you in His arms-
because mine can’t heal your heart.
mine don’t know your soul
oh, how I wish they did-
but I must not dwell on dreams and forget to live
I must learn to stand alone again
